Grace Lodes nearly posted a triple-double helping the Grand Rapids Community College’s women’s basketball team to a 49-47 victory over Muskegon Community College on Wednesday.

GRCC was in front for much of the game, leading by as many as 12 points. Muskegon, with a 9-3 overall record, battled to keep the score close.

Down 46-41, Muskegon’s Mariah Pringle made a lay-up with 21 seconds left. Following a GRCC turnover, she connected a three-pointer to tie the game at 46 with just 11 seconds remaining.  Pringle would finish with a game-high 16 points to go with seven rebounds and six blocks.

GRCC’s Marlene Bussler, of Harper Creek, was fouled with eight seconds remaining and connected on both free throws giving her team the lead back.

Muskegon’s Julia Tierman had a chance to tie it up with two free throw chances of her own, but made just one. Bussler finished the GRCC scoring by making one more free throw with under two seconds to go.

Lodes, who hadn’t played in 16 days, was two blocks away from a triple-double, but still finished with the fourth double-double of her Raider career with 12 points and 12 rebounds.
